About the restaurant Le Socrate

ESPRIT CANAILLE - Il y a une atmosphère de bouchon lyonnais dans ce vieux bistrot tout proche de Plainpalais et du boulevard des Philosophes ! Déco rétro et objets anciens aux murs, sol en damier et petites tables en bois : Le Socrate est un bon troquet comme on les aime.

SAVEURS D'ANTAN - À vous les petits plats fait maison à la Française ! Terrine de la grand-mère Angèle ou os à moelle à la fleur de sel, joue de bœuf braisée, souris d'agneau confite au thym frais et fondant au chocolat, vous ferez le plein d’authenticité.

BY GAULT MILLAU - Recommandé par le célèbre guide, voici un joli recoin de Genève où l’on vient aussi pour déguster un bon verre de vin…

Excellent food, we had the Cochon and the Lamb. The recommended wine was also very good and worth its price. The waiters were friendly and didn't take very long to take our orders or bring the food, only in the end after waiting to pay for about 25mins we ended up paying at the bar, but that didn't affect our very good experience here. It is a very typical french style bistro, a relaxed atmosphere, which also means there is a certain noise level, but I prefer friendly chatter to absolute silence so you can feel at ease talking without worrying about disturbing anyone.

Good atmosphere despite the medium-sized dining area, with reasonable distance between tables allowing sufficient intimacy in conversations. Asked for the "plat du jour" which was a quite sizeable, magnificently presented and delicious "souris d'agneau". Other customers' dishes looked equally enticing. Home cooking with a certan flair but no unnecessary complications. The same can be said of the delightful desserts. Took advantage of an attactive 50% discount. Will certainly return.

Very good dishes and nice classical-looking restaurant. However, when we went it was a full-house, so it was quite hot inside (uncomfortable, given it was <10 degrees outside) and the waiters were completely lost for service (it took us more than 1h30 to get our main dishes, more than 30min to order the wine). So the food was good, but the experience around it was disappointing.

Very warm and friendly service, though very slow to get water or wine despite not being busy. Note: as others said, thy will not apply the Fourchette discount from booking until asked, after presenting the bill. Wonderful chanterelles and carpacchio de thon.
